    Probably not Elaine. I assume you paid a fee for it and they gave you a product key. What you can try is to find a Windows7 version on their website, download and install that and apply your product key. That might work.

    If that does not work, you might consider running a video of your choice as a screensaver. If that interests you, post back and I tell you how that works.

    PS. I congratulate you on your computer skills. I am 73 and I know it is not easy at our age - I have a hard time remembering things.

    Thanks Andy. i'll give that a look. Although I 'never' use screensavers as I think they're ugly, I always liked the fishy one.

    Anand, I think pointing with a big, fat arrow to some bum driver scanner program will mislead the uninitiated. These driver scanners are a pain in the neck and it is unfortunate that the forum sponsers them.

    Wolfgang, Which fat arrow? Which bum driver scanner program?? The forum does not have a single affiliate link... maybe it was some Google ad you saw ...

    I am sorry Anand, but below the picture of the aquarium (at the link you posted) there was a big fat red arrow pointing to this driver scanner download. I just checked and it is gone. It did not look like a Google ad - at least I could not identify it as such. But now things seem to be back in order. thanks for your attention to the problem.

    You should give the Digital Aquarium Screensaver a try. And it works fine on my Windows XP system.
    It runs on all systems, both 32-bit and 64-bit.
    And it's GORGEOUS!!!!
